The charming little city of Reykjavik ... colorful architecture, ancient manuscripts, interesting street art and the beautiful central church.





Fire and Ice ... not just a figure of speech

Strapping on crampons and walking a glacier, plus dramatic Skogafoss -- waterfall complete with rainbow.

Driving around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula ... dramatic landscape of snow-capped volcanoes, mossy lava fields and quaint churches, and the road practically to ourselves.



Green is the Theme

St. Patrick's Day is a magical treat as we witness the Northern Lights ... another experience crossed off my Top 10 list.
